Columbus Enquirer: Yesterday, Mrs. Sarah Banks, widow of the late John Banks, died at her residence in Wynnton, after an illness of a few weeks. She was between seventy and seventy-five years of age, and came to Columbus in its earliest days. She was the mother of twelve children. Among them are Mrs. E. E. Younge, Mrs. G. J. Peacock, George Y. Banks, E. Sims, Banks, and Dr. Banks, of New York. Mrs. Banks was one of those pure Christians, who lived, as it were, for the good of others, always ready and anxious to lend a helping hand to those needing assistance. Some weeks ago she received a fall, which confined her to her bed, and after days of patient suffering she was called from this earth to that bright and beautiful home beyond the skies. The deceased was known by many of our citizens, and this sad news will cause many a sigh of regret. A Christian Woman, affectionate mother, kind and generous friend, has gone. May her rest be as peaceful and calm as a babe's on its mother's breast.

Daughter of John and Susan Daniel Watkins
